Bank Negara Money Museum Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur - Museums
Bank Negara Money Museum

Housed within the Central Bank building, the Bank Negara Money Museum serves as a repository for the country's numismatic heritage.

Bank Negara Malaysia started issuing its own currency in 1967 and since 1979, it has been purchasing coins sporadically with the objective of setting up its own Money Museum.

Furthermore, as the Bank regularly receives many visitors each year, including school children and VIPs, the Bank felt it would also be desirable to display its collection and preserve the national heritage by having a public museum to show the evolution of money in the country from early to modern times.

Bank Negara Money Museum Kuala Lumpur

The plan to have an authoritative depository for the Bank's growing numismatic collection became a reality with the opening of the Money Museum on 5 April 1989.

It was officially opened by Datin Seri Dr Siti Hasmah Mohamed Ali, wife of the Malaysian Prime Minister, Dato' Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad, in conjunction with the thirtieth Anniversary of Bank Negara Malaysia.

An important aim of the museum is to disseminate knowledge pertaining to the evolution of Malaysian currency through its exhibitions and publications.

Coins, currency notes, tokens and other artifacts are displayed at the museum.
